    Brazil has to be a prohibitive favorite, IMO.

    I like Germany as a somewhat dark horse.

    Still... he's by far our most dangerous player creating something out of nothing.

    Landon Donovan is NOT on the team!!

    Since when did the US get 3 or 4 forwards that are better than Donovan?

    USA needed to play a longshot if they have any hope of advancing out of this group of death. Even if he was a sub in the 80th minute to try and steal a point, you're not going to convince me that the greatest American player of all time couldn't have given something to this squad. :no:
